This Moa is an old exhibition prop that has been in storage for years.

Now she is seeking new pastures
and we need to find a new home for her.

She is mounted on a steel/wood base, 2185 long x 1360 wide. She is sitting on adjustable feet, which creates a flexible height (of around 120mm). Overall height is around 2100, overall length is around 2285. We are not sure of her weight, but she is not light, maybe 500 -750kg (shhhhh).

Now, she used to operate on "air" and the hydraulic system may still work. It's rather old, as you can see on the photo, and I cannot garuantee it will. I will get it cleared to be electrically safe though. She has some eczema on her throat, as per the photo, and she is wearing a coat of ostrich feathers.

As she has been out of action for a while, I'm also not sure how moveable her mechanics are, or what her movements can do. You can lift her head easily though, but her legs are fixed, and her body seems solid.

The items offered for sale are ex-museum building and support materials, surplus to requirements and not part of our collections, and are offered for sale "as is".

No guarantee is given after sale. Pick up only. This is put up for sale in the interest of recycling and we hope it will find a good home.

Pick up is from Parnell, Auckland, pick up during normal business hours is preferred. After hours or weekends is less than ideal
